Are you ready to blossom?

Faith is like a flower. In order to grow, it needs soil, water, and sun—food for the spirit. That’s just what this devotional is. Spiritual food to help your faith grow strong and beautiful.

Featuring 365 days of wisdom from your favorite Faithgirlz! authors, as well as quotes and questions from real girls like you, this devotional offers pages of inspiration on everything from navigating friendships, to taming the tongue, to trusting God in everything, big and small. Growing up can be tough, but Jesus is guiding you every step of the way.

Beauty of Believing combines the talents of Faithgirlz! authors Tasha K. Douglas, Mona Hodgson, Kristi Holl, Lois Walfred Johnson, Allia Zobel Nolan, and Nancy Rue, and their words of wisdom will help your faith bloom and flourish as you grow into the girl God wants you to be.

THE BEAUTY OF BELIEVING is a great devotional for tween girls. They will love the colorful cover and the devotions are decorated with flowers and an appealing layout. They start with a verse, a devotional and are followed by more to read, a question to consider, and a short prayer related to the devotion.

My tween daughters both loved this book and highly recommend it to other tween girls. If you are looking for a devotional for your favorite tween girl this holiday season, then THE BEAUTY OF BELIEVING is a great one to consider. Available in ebook and paperback. 432 pages.

The deluxe edition also includes audio from award-winning actor David Suchet, allowing read-along opportunities or inspiration wherever you go.

Perfect for family devotions, bedtime, story time, or even as a companion to The Jesus Storybook Bible, this accessible yet theologically rich book reveals biblical truth in word and image, all working together and designed to do one thing: to make the reader’s heart sing.

THOUGHTS TO MAKE YOUR HEART SING: Deluxe Edition is a perfect gift to give to a mom with young children. The children can listen to the audio cds in the car or in the nursery or when the designated reader is otherwise engaged and follow along in the book if they want. Or they can read each devotional individually.

No substance really, but each does start with thoughts and followed by a Bible verse. The illustrations are lovely. This would be a lovely baby gift as well. Available in hardcover (includes two audio cds). 224 pages.
